This is a layout with an old photo of my mom and I titled Cherish. I was really cute once wasn’t I J ? I have already started working on my mom’s 60th birthday scrapbook, so I try to create a layout every time I find the right materials and mood for one of the photos.
1. Cut images: sometimes there are really pretty images on pattern papers that can be cut and use as embellishments. On this layout I cut some roses and doilies.
2. Add texture: paper is flat but you can always add texture by crumpling it, folding it or creating accordion like creases.
3. Create different finish: instead of a clean straight edge tear the paper and ink it.
4. Add height: create layers in different height by adhering pieces of paper with dimensional adhesive.
5. Have fun with shapes: make paper curls by twisting strips of paper.
